Probate is the process in which your last will and testament are validated by the Surrogate’s Court upon your death. It can take months and even years to probate a will, during which time there may be numerous court hearings and even more pleadings and related documents submitted.

  • Filing a petition with the Surrogate’s Court to open your estate
  • Notifying your next of kin
  • Locating assets and setting up an estate bank account
